Wanted – Hastings Pier 23rd August 1969

Martin Richter… the Move & kendo Nagasaki – woop woop!

Tony Ham… I met some of the wrestlers mentioned here a couple of weeks back.

Iain Cobby… I’m sure the Move gig is the one where they turned up late. My father was in the theater Bingo that night when the Move mistakenly thought that this was where they were playing. They quickly rushed up to my dad (95 next week) and profusely apologized saying the van had broken down   ( haven’t we all used that one?). I was  waiting in the ballroom for the kick off, and after the gig ( cadging a lift home) was told what happened. “Didn’t you get their autografts?” I said.  “Why?” he said. Doh.

Gerry Fortsch… The Move were great.

John Warner… Used to have weekly wrestling at the Strand Theatre club. Biggest laugh was Kendo Nagasaki who one week would be 5 foot ten and the next week 6 foot three.I think that there were about six of them.

Tony Ham… Peter Thornley is Kendo Nagasaki.
